  • It's officially Carnival weekend!
⠀
All over Brazil (and other parts of South America) people take to the streets in mind-numbing numbers to dance, party and let loose. It’s a time to forget about the daily grind and enjoy the moment. The outside world sees exotic dancing, vibrant fireworks and wild parties.
⠀
For a brief moment, Brazil seems like the happiest place on earth.
⠀
But there's a dark reality to Carnival that few know of. It lies in the roots and history of the celebration, beyond the glitter and feathers. We believe that a real travel experience goes beyond just visiting beautiful places. We’re a community of explorers, students and teachers. So let's dive deeper into this colourful celebration.
⠀
⠀
In a nutshell, while the ruling elite was attending masquerade balls, the poor would dress up and dance in the streets They enjoyed a moment of fantasy where for a few short days, there were no rules.
⠀
It was a rare opportunity to express themselves freely, criticize politics, use humour and invert societal norms. Those elements still shape Carnaval today and political incorrectness persists. That's the spirit of street Carnaval.
⠀
While injustice is yet to be banished from the world, Carnaval is a time of hope and optimism. It’s a time for freedom of expression, cultural exploration and reflection. Most of all, it's a time for people to come together.

  • This alpenglow hitting Cerro Torre in Patagonia lasted all of about 2 minutes. We hiked about 9km in the dark, set up and waiter until the sun came up behind us, lighting up these beautiful peaks. The sun came through right at the horizon for just a couple of minutes until the clouds covered it up.
